I want to use rpm as my package manager. and so i downloaded rpm source and tried to compile it unsuccessfully. then i unpacked the binary targz and tried to run it. some libs missing. compiled them. then when i try to install anything it says things like gcc missing, or glibc missing. I have already compiled it but obviously rpm doesnt see them all. do you think i could just manually add the list of packages somewhere (/var/log/packages maybe???). i dont think this would work but if it does, please let me know here to add the list of packages and how.h
